GeForce GTX 1070 vs GeForce GTX 295

Intro

The GeForce GTX 1070 makes use of a 16 nm design. nVidia has set the core frequency at 1506 MHz. The GDDR5 RAM is set to run at a speed of 2000 MHz on this particular model. It features 1920 SPUs along with 120 TAUs and 64 ROPs.

Compare all of that to the GeForce GTX 295, which uses a 55 nm design. nVidia has set the core frequency at 576 MHz. The GDDR3 RAM works at a speed of 999 MHz on this specific model. It features 240 SPUs along with 80 Texture Address Units and 28 Rasterization Operator Units.

Pixel Rate

If running with lots of anti-aliasing is important to you, then the GeForce GTX 1070 is a better choice, by far. (explain)

GeForce GTX 1070 96384 Mpixels/sec
GeForce GTX 295 32256 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 64128 (199%)

Please note that the above 'benchmarks' are all just theoretical - the results were calculated based on the card's specifications, and real-world performance may (and probably will) vary at least a bit.

One or more cards in this comparison are multi-core. This means that their bandwidth, texel and pixel rates are theoretically doubled - this does not mean the card will actually perform twice as fast, but only that it should in theory be able to. Actual game benchmarks will give a more accurate idea of what it's capable of.

Memory Bandwidth: Memory bandwidth is the max amount of information (counted in MB per second) that can be transported past the external memory interface within a second. It is calculated by multiplying the bus width by the speed of its memory. In the case of DDR memory, it must be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the bandwidth is, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, High Dynamic Range and higher screen resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum texture map elements (texels) that can be applied in one second. This figure is calculated by multiplying the total amount of texture units by the core clock speed of the chip. The higher the texel rate, the better the card will be at texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels processed in a second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels that the graphics chip can possibly write to the local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is worked out by multiplying the amount of colour ROPs by the clock speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also sometimes called Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel output rate is also dependant on quite a few other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the max fill rate.
